World Language Teachers at ACTFL in New Orleans

Just before Thanksgiving, Trinity Prep world language teachers Rita Daugherty and Vanessa Spallone flew to New Orleans to attend the annual American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) World Language Convention.

Vanessa had the honor of co-presenting a "PechaKucha" (20 slides, 20 seconds each) with ACTFL National Teacher of the Year Noah Geisel and five other amazing world language teachers from all over the United States.

Both Rita and Vanessa learned a great deal about social justice integration in education, Louisiana's Francophone identity, and they discovered new authentic resources and methodologies, which they shared with their colleagues back at Trinity Prep.
